2017 Spring Capsule Wardrobe

May 1, 2017


With only 1 month left of spring I’ve already started reviewing this year’s Spring Capsule Wardrobe.  In my last post I began my Spring Capsule Wardrobe Check-In and discussed what was and wasn’t working over the past 2 months.

As long-time readers of Shopping Brake already know, I’m a big fan of crunching numbers.  Today I’m going to review exactly what’s inside my 2017 Spring Capsule Wardrobe, as well as what the total cost of this wardrobe is.

Only 1 month left to wear my 2017 Spring Capsule Wardrobe

I have more jeans in this capsule wardrobe than I have in previous years, but this is the capsule wardrobe I will continue with to finish off spring this year.  With only 1 month of spring left to go, I’m excited to start working on creating my Summer Capsule Wardrobe!
